#BestLentEver – Day 16. ALONE.

When I’m really frustrated with myself and I can’t seem to find someone to talk to, I run to the Blessed Sacrament. Thankfully, I have a church near me that offers 24/7 adoration chapel. I run to the Blessed Sacrament for clarity and for serenity. Most of the time, I just want to sit there asking God to hug me. I don’t have to talk. I don’t have to say anything. I just sit there in silence in God’s presence. Sometimes I imagine Him patting my back and saying, “It’s going to be all okay. I’m here now.” Isn’t that wonderful?

I have to be honest though, I have not ran to the Blessed Sacrament lately. Partly, because I have never felt the need to, and partly because when I’m feeling a bit down and frustrated with myself I try to occupy myself by doing other things. I have lost the need to be silent or alone. Sometimes you need a little boost to find out what you’re missing out on. I am missing out on myself and I need to realize that what I need is a reminder that God is trying to talk to us through the silence of our hearts. We just need to be willing to listen.

Help me to listen through the silence.

Daily, I seek the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to deliver the message of the Lord. I aim to reach out to the unreachable, and everyday I strive to live a holy life. I know I am not perfect but I know God's love is real. I am a Catholic, a pro-lifer without a doubt and I desire to live and love purely.
